Need help
Ok need help on Level 4: Archives, when you are in the Time and Tide, you are suppose to throw an object into the portal after the third tick. When I do it lands right next to me instead of on the pressure plate. Any ideas? Seems like a glitc to me.

How can anything land next to you when you throw it away?

Answer: you did not throw it.

I am familiar with this room as I have just solved the puzzle myself. There is a pressure plate on the outer left side of the teleporter room. You must throw a rock on that pressure plate from the right side of the room. This will close the pit in the middle of the room. Then you will stand on the pit and wait for the teleporter to pass by your right side, side step and throw a rock onto the forward right pressure plate. This will open the gate until the next teleporter passes over that square. You need to rush through the gate before the teleporter moves the rock.

Hope this helps.

Or maybe I am thinking of a different room.

Oh well.

It's not a glitch. There's an invisible teleporter that returns the items to you if you get the timing wrong. This is to prevent you from throwing away all your items and not being able to cross the pits.

There are two reasons why you are failing this puzzle.
1.Your timing if off. You are correct that you have to throw something after the 3rd tick, but it's more like 4 ticks. The 3 ticks just help you develop a rhythm.
2.You are not throwing far enough. Starting through the space you are standing on, you need to throw something 5 spaces. There are two ways to throw something, you either drag an item to the top half of your screen to "chuck" something. The other way is to place a "throwable" object such as a shuriken/dagger/rock into a hand, and right click it. The 2nd method travels further.

If all else fails, just do what this guys does. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ckOjGHI0Jxw&t=3m17s

There is no invisible teleporter. If the item misses the teleporter it falls down the pit behind it.

The problem is very likely that you did not "throw" from a characters hand but "toss" from the mouse cursor. A "toss"ed item can at best travel 3 squares ahead with distance depending on it's weight. Now here the item must travel 5 squares to reach the pressure plate so you have to either "throw" or "shoot" an item into the teleporter.

You need to equip the item and then right click to throw it.

I used the Throwing Knife from the 3 Throwing Knifes in the Niche. After the 3rd click wait 1 second ( or 2 sec) and throw even though the portal is not there yet. By the time the Knife reaches it the portal will be there and send the Knife to the Pressure Plate. The pits will close.
